    I've been thinking about one- problem is I'd have to put it on for each drive I wanted it and take it off for travel because the back of my truck always gets coated with snow from driving. Thinking about IR backup sensors instead.

    I bought that iball and its junk. Won't connect from camera to monitor half the time, and the magnet definitely wouldn't be strong enough to drive down the road with.

    i'm gonna cross that one off the list then! thanks

    there is a 7pin trailer plig in the back and i see alot of adapters online for a cig plug. maybe i'll get one and wire it to a cig plug and plug it in there.
